That's what team vice president Stephen Jones told Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan on Wednesday.
"We have a great quarterback and he deserves to be paid,'' Jones said. "We have a good quarterback and we want to reward him. He's in the last year of a contract and our goal is to not let the quarterback run out of contract.''
He also said that talks were still "informal," but that had better change soon because the 'Boys are running out of time. Free agency starts on March 12 and without a new contract in place for their franchise quarterback, they probably won't be able to re-sign Anthony Spencer.
